This makes me sad. Let us honour him with a minute of silence and facerape by monstrous biomechanical alien penises.

RIP. So many of the things I love owe so much to his work: science fiction, horror, heavy metal, DOOM.

Definitely struck me by surprise. I haven't known him for very long which kinda led me to assume he was much younger than he truly was. Rest in piece.

May he rest in peace. His art may have been controversial but it was undoubtedly unique.

Pretty much the opposite. He apparently fell down the stairs in his house and died later in hospital.

I just learned about this, and it's sad to hear that he passed. He was a great artist and his surrealism in his work is amazing. I remember his work in the Alien series, and I saw his work in the video games Darkseed and Darkseed II. My condolences go to his friends and family, and I'll miss him too.

Well, this sucks. The world needs more art like his: the kind of surreal, sex-infused body horror that makes most people uncomfortable.

Any wads come to mind with prominent hr giger artwork in it as textures? I can think of a few wads that have one hr giger texture here and there.

Giger textures would work really well in Doom 64.

Well, we could. It wouldn't do anything useful and would most certainly count as illegal desecration of his corpse, but we could.
